It’s easy to get caught up in the stuff that’s screaming the loudest.
Years ago I was a lifeguard (where is that red Speedo?) and remember knowing that if I ever arrived at an emergency situation, my attention should go to the people who were quiet, not the ones who were screaming for my attention. The people screaming were breathing and conscious, I needed to attend to the ones lying quietly, those were the people we could lose, possibly forever.
We all have things in our lives screaming for our attention and things that are quietly slipping away, possibly forever.
I challenge you today to focus on the things in your life that REALLY matter, not the ones trying the hardest to get your attention.
PLEASE NOTE – NO SPEEDOS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS POST
